Overview

The Review

With its European style and Uruguayan soul, the brand new After Hotel is transforming Montevideo’s hotel scene. I lived in Uruguay’s gentle capital once upon a time, and I adore it for having all the charms of its celebrated Argentine counterpart (Colonial-era quirks, European feel, great steak), plus a dazzling coastline and a laid-back vibe. But Montevideo is not, generally speaking, a mecca of fashion or service. Restaurants can take 15 minutes to serve coffee, the dress code is casual, and the nice hotels are often stodgy.{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/2678/prop-86866-1339600867-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The brand new After Hotel is just a few blocks from Montevideo’s quiet riverside esplanade.”}

The After is changing all that. It has a look that is clean-lined and swish. The 92 guestrooms, which range from comfortably cozy to uncommonly ample, are smartly done up, with black-and-white interiors accented by patterned gray carpets, mod metal light fixtures and dashes of crimson and chocolate. Premium Rooms and top-floor suites show off luxe Italian leather sofas and lounge chairs. The bathrooms are state-of-the-art affairs in slate, chrome and mirrors.

The location in the posh Buceo neighborhood has advantages and drawbacks. On the one hand, the area — home to the city’s emerging financial district and an upscale residential community — has great dining and a grassy and undeveloped shoreline, and it’s totally safe. On the other hand, the attractions of the city center are relatively far away (though the front desk will happily arrange a city tour).

The best part about staying here is that the After, like Montevideo, inspires people to take it easy. By 5:30 p.m. the lobby bar, 20 Pasos Café, is buzzing with businessmen unwinding over whiskey-based cocktails, while tuckered-out leisure travelers refresh themselves with a rooftop swim. In the morning a lavish continental breakfast featuring everything from scrambled eggs to bread with dulce de leche is available until 11 — yet another indulgence for travelers enjoying the easy life, Uruguay-style.

Bring your own sheets and towels
JeanCVillanueva

Room not ready at an already late check-in time, very inefficient service causing crowds at a tiny reception.
Disgustingly stained bed sheets with pubic hair, bathroom smelling real bad, small room, windows really dusty, pillows completely filthy and smelling like sewer.
If you want to ruin your marriage, this is the place.

avoid at all cost

there was not one single surface in hotel or room that was not in need of cleaning or repair. that for something that practically just opened. location slightly out of town. reticent service. prone to attract internet guests looking for low rates.

great stay

We stayed here the first week of April. The check-in was smooth, we received a lot of information about the hotel and the surroundings. Close to the Montevideo shopping mall and La Rambla.
The room was clean and the every day cleaning was perfect.
The breakfast was excellent with good food choices and a great service.
The hotel staff is very polite, all the time with a smile on their face , greeting you and answering your questions and offering help. They speak English.
The excellent service provided made our stay a great experience.
Highly recommended.
